Toxic Deplorable B Woodman May 14 2019 at 12:07 am “And the beancounters shall inherit the earth”. Just enough to be buried in. No more. No less. Ed Brault May 14 2019 at 7:04 am “I’ll grant them six feet of earth when the time comes”–Col. Sapt of Ruritania Zar Belk! Kafiroon May 14 2019 at 12:09 am They way our govt. spends money, I do not think they have any bean counters, unless it is for something that would actually help us citizens. Then it’s “That costs too much. Cancel it.” Bill G May 14 2019 at 5:50 am A sad truth. Toxic Deplorable B Woodman May 14 2019 at 12:10 am BTW, just what IS the autonomous range of any of those Boston Robotics devices before recharge/refuel/whatever? JSStryker May 14 2019 at 12:18 am Maybe they use some of the beans to power themselves? JTC May 14 2019 at 12:27 am Hey if beanpower can blow a hole in a submarine, should be able to power the dawgs to get the beans to the Marines. Parlez vous? kadaka May 14 2019 at 12:14 am How are we going to save the planet from GlobalClimateWarmingChange in 11 1/2 years if they’re encouraging soldiers to release methane in foxholes? Tagg May 14 2019 at 12:35 am Yeah you cant talk beans without a fart coming up for discussion. Here comes the flatulence jokes. JTC May 14 2019 at 12:53 am 3 jokes and 20 minutes late, Tagg… cfm56dash7 May 14 2019 at 11:36 am https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPIP9KXdmO0&frags=pl%2Cwn cmblake6 May 14 2019 at 1:03 am Man’s best friend. Punta Gorda May 14 2019 at 2:56 am How did they get a valid mode for the transponder. Pamela May 14 2019 at 3:11 am What happens when you rub their bellies? JSStryker May 14 2019 at 10:56 am You try it, I’ll stand over here at a safe distance! 😀 JimK May 14 2019 at 6:39 am He may not get the bean counter vote but he’ll surely get the GI votes. Toxic Deplorable B Woodman May 15 2019 at 12:03 am Gastro-intestinal? GWB May 14 2019 at 6:42 am Now, THAT is supporting our troops! 🙂 interventor May 14 2019 at 7:08 am Can it bring coffee, too? eon May 14 2019 at 7:16 am With a built-in warmer, I’d say no problem. Definite improvement over the old Mermite can. chers eon kadaka May 14 2019 at 7:29 am I’ve been listening to network TV News spin the tariffs on China as a financial ‘semi-crisis’ impacting Americans on just about everything. I’m very concerned this reveals how dependent we are on Chinese imports for so many categories of things, including foodstuffs, which gives China a huge militarily strategic advantage. The one hypothetical retaliation mentioned was ‘And what if China told their people to stop buying iPhones?’ If they can do that, selectively target with total bans, then they can selectively decimate our economy. The networks’ unspoken implication that we should hurry up and placate China before it gets worse, is not the compelling argument they think it is. DCE May 14 2019 at 7:59 am If they told them to not buy iPhones then wouldn’t that put a huge dent in Foxconn’s earnings and cause them to lay off thousands of Chinese workers? kadaka May 14 2019 at 8:36 am Foxconn is a Taiwanese company so beating them up would be a pleasant bonus. China is ramping up their “social credit system” so there will be no complaints from amongst the proles. Doggo May 14 2019 at 8:25 am We are the world’s greatest exporter of food. Nobody else comes close. In fact, the farmers are the market segment who is getting hurt the worst by this tarif tit-for-tat. Unfortunately, China is the world’s number 1 source of mouths to feed. kadaka May 14 2019 at 12:22 pm One import from China mentioned was baby milk formula. We’re trusting one of the top sources of counterfeit and mis-formulated medicines and supplements and even foods, to feed our babies. Now what’s it going to take to commercially allow what’s already done less formally, and let screened and tested women sell their milk to a responsible distributing agency? You can sell blood and sperm, why not feed the (non-sensitive) babies with real human milk instead of Chinese formula? Made In America By Americans! Lyle May 14 2019 at 4:42 pm Don’t grant a foreign power more power than it has. At best the Chi-Comms can temporarily inconvenience us as a nation. We ourselves on the other hand can destroy everything America ever supposedly stood for. Anyway the American govt. has been building this up for many decades, hoping to build up China and others as a way to get at us, to ruin our sense of independence and our confidence, to get us into such a state as to beg for compromise, to make us even weaker, and thus have us cheering for that very process of compromise which has been eating away at us like a cancer. It’s all about that globalism, that ecumenical movement, with all roads leading to Rome. The enemy has known all along that a noble, principled, confident people, holding to God’s law, can never be overthrown, so it’s always about promoting compromise, “open-mindedness” etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., ad infinitum, until all the world believes you’re a total Nazi unless you embrace compromise (of Christian/libertarian principles specifically) as the ultimate state of enlightened being. JTC May 14 2019 at 5:16 pm I doubt anyone here would disagree with any of that. But those roads to Rome are all paved with money and bad intentions, and Rome itself is the pot of tainted gold and power. Always follow the money Lyle. That’s not compromise, that’s how you stop them from getting to the gold and power before we do. JTC May 14 2019 at 10:02 am What was it Cramer from Mad Money said? “They need us a lot more than we need them.” That is the foundation for any deal on any scale, and of course the artist of them knows that better than anybody…except maybe the chinks. Doesn’t mean there won’t be pain and a price to pay…and Trump has already announced temporary support for our most critical industries like farming. One difference is their paroles will complain about it a lot less than ours…out of fear of their gov. Thank God we haven’t reached that point, yet. Support your President now, or answer to theirs later. JTC May 14 2019 at 10:55 am I usually hate auto-correct…I wrote proles but the ‘puter’s changing it to paroles is pretty funny and not completely inaccurate. 🙂 Chris Muir May 14 2019 at 11:06 am I really liked the Gollum one. John May 14 2019 at 2:56 pm Our former “vice” President was, and apparently still is, in the vanguard of giving away our intellectual property for the privilege of shipping our jobs overseas and paying a few bucks less at WalMart. While the MSM was busy manufacturing a case against the POTUS as a Russian Puppet out of whole cloth, Joe Biden has proven himself to be an honorary member of the Chinese Communist Party. Kafiroon May 14 2019 at 1:54 pm With Javier’s hacking skill, I imagine the Dawgs were set to scan for codes and mimic. The “people” now claiming they are “running” for office are calling me (maybe among 50% of the country) some very nasty names that are generally worse than deplorable. The presstitutes are happy to “report” these “code” words to identify what we are supposed to be. There are so many that I cannot keep up with them all. interventor May 14 2019 at 4:15 pm Its China that will feel the most pain.

He said, in a swinish manner! interventor May 14 2019 at 11:25 pm Sorry, I couldn’t help myself! interventor May 14 2019 at 5:45 pm Its China that will feel the most pain.

We will win. We always have, we always do, we always will. It may be one of those “oh shit” moments for you, but just hang on. We WILL win.
